democrat harry reid expressing his condolences. but also during that statement, there was an implication there that under sequestration, when budgets are cut, that we may see more of these that it may put the marines and others and soldiers at risk because of the budget cuts. now i can tell you, marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied. saying that this this exercise, for example, was planned well in advance, had nothing to do with the budget cuts. there were no corners cut. and if they couldn't afford to have all the safety precautions into place, they wouldn't do the exercise. and in fact, one marine corps told us just, one marine corps official told us a short time ago, he considers this nothing but pure political posturing on the backs of these dead marines. >> those are some very strong words from the marine corps about senator harry reid, jim miklaszewski thank you soef for being on the program. >>> tonight president obama boards air force one to go to the middle east. prospects for movement on the israeli/palestinian peace proc
debate. senate majority leader harry reid announcing the assault weapons ban authored by california senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst jua

, the constituents at home. there are plenty of democrats including majority leader harry reid who have the same basic concerns, and there is a concern about the gun laws like the assault weapons ban would be effective so that you will see the republicans will try to mostly strengthen the mental health aspects of this problem, and they will see, and watch very carefully to see what senators like alaskan senator mark begich and arkansas senator pryor and louisiana senator mary landrieu, and if they don't go towards the gun control side, then the republicans certainly won't. >> and jason, talk about that, because for harry reid, does it cause problem for him being in the committee and he being a gun owner and he being the senator from nevada, will that cause difficulty for him? >> i live in texas, and even here, a huge majority of people are here for closing the gun show loophole and bringing it into the fold here and half of the voters here in texas support banning the assault weapons. voters are speaking out in increasing numbers about doing something about this, taand the new york times is righ

through harry reid. >> this is what liberals want to know is not when hair arery reid is going to move because harry reid is not a profiles in courage leadership kind of guy. he is a will of his caucus kind of guy. he stepped out in front very few times. generally what he does is reflect the general consensus of his caucus. if he is going to move and take a chance it has to be because the president is pushing him, pushing him, pushing him and we heard from senator feinstein last week the president they believe that nothing is going to happen unless he gets out in front and leads on this. remember, this is one of the three gs for liberals in the second obama term. gay marriage. global warming and guns. and these are the three biggest issues for the left and if the president looks like he is dragging his feet on this they will get cranky and then to take us back to senator king's point they will be less inclined to do something that they have already shown very little in krieneation to do which is to address the long-term drivers of the debt meddeficit particularly did i. >> shannon: sen

year. senator harry reid, the democratic majority leader, has come to the floor expressing some frustration. he wanted to move on this continuing resolution this week, as early as yesterday, giving members an opportunity to offer amendments. several members stepped forward and were prepared to do so, but they were stopped. there was a hold. and now, as i understand from the senator from oklahoma, and i believe my friend from arizona may echo his remarks, they're prepared to not stand in the way of any amendments, if members wish to offer, they can, and i hope they will. let me say a few words -- mr. mccain: since my friend is on that subject, could i -- mr. durbin: i ask permission to engage in dialogue with my friend, the senator from arizona. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: you'd say to my friend from illinois, there is no further objection. the senator from oklahoma and i have reviewed the bill and we discussed yesterday about its length and our obligations to -- i promise my friend from illinois, i won't rehash that discussion we had. but we have no obj

, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a

seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work hard and make tough choices, our kids will inherit a stronger country. mr. speaker, the choice is clear. if hoosier families balanced their budgets, washington doesn't have an excuse. it's time the president and the senate offer real solutions for hardworking hoosier families. i commend chairman ryan and the house budget committee for their hard work and i urge my colleagues to support the resolution. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. chairman. i n
